        What is a "striking piece"? I had read that many of the guilds were under their protection.

        Jon,
         
        That is not a crown. That is a striking piece which was the badge of the Dukes of Burgandry. Its presence indicate that the archers/crossbow guild is under the protection and with a charter from the Dukes.
